Cygnus Diving Club is a not-for-profit springboard and platform club, operating out of the Centennial Pool in Halifax, Nova Scotia. We are committed to the development of a positive, co-operative, and supportive atmosphere for participation at all levels in the sport of diving.
The club is primarily committed to competitive performance. Our belief is that competitive divers can best be supported through a full spectrum of introductory and developmental programs. As such, the decisions and actions of the club are designed to ensure that all divers who have the desire to become competent in diving will be given the opportunity to participate.
We offer a wide range of programs to suit all levels from beginner to national level, including adult learn to dive classes. We are always looking for more divers so why not give it a try!
Return to Training in 2022
After a number of delays and maintenance issues, Centennial Pool has re-opened.
Returning Cygnus divers will be invited to attend the re-opening practice on Sunday, October 16, 2022. Practices will run from 6:30-8:00pm and include dryland training. Practices will be available on Mondays (starting October 24th), Thursdays (starting October 20th), and Sundays.
Pre-registration is required. Invitations with the registration link are being sent to returning divers.
This return to practice is only for divers previously registered with Cygnus. New divers will be invited to attend Try It Night in November.
Returning divers in our Development and Competitive programs will start retraining first, for 1-3 sessions per week. Once we have training up and running, we will start adding additional training opportunities and group placement.
New divers will be invited to a placement class (Try It Night) once we are able to expand our training. Children ages 6-12 with no diving experience will be recommended for our PLOUF (learn to dive) program. Children who have had diving training already, or have other relevant sports experience, may be invited to join our Development program, in consultation with the Head Coach and parents/guardians of the diver.
PLOUF programming will resume in January 2023.
We thank you for your continued interest in diving! We are excited to get our divers and coaches back to the pool.
